The forward region of the ZEUS detector requires enhanced tracking and particle identification capabilities due to the asymmetric beam energies. It consists of the Forward Tracking Device (FTD) and the Transition Radiation Detector (TRD). The purpose of FTD is to reconstruct low angle tracks of ionising particles whereas TRD separates electrons from hadrons. For the HERA 2000 upgrade programme TRD will be replaced by the Straw Tube Tracker (STT). STT will improve tracking efficiency in events with high multiplicities.
